Switch to Gel Formulas for Lightweight Hydration

When you’re looking to change up your skincare routine for a seasonal shift, or if you’re wanting to upgrade the product(s) you’re using to something more effective, the consistency and feel of the formula is an important factor to consider. Gel cleansers, moisturizers, foundations, and eye colors are an excellent choices because they’re hydrating yet feel light on the skin. Gel is easily absorbed, can be lathered with water, and blends nicely with a make-up sponge without weighing you down or clogging pores. We all know how important hydration is!

Check out the following products and formulations that will gel nicely with your skincare routine. 

Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleansing Gel

This Irish Moor Mud cleanser is purifying and decongests the skin of dirt, oil, and make-up from the day with natural ingredients. The mud is made from the decomposition of plant matter over thousands of years for a concentrated treatment packed with bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, and fatty acids. Hijiki Seaweed provides even more nutrients and levels of B-vitamins, calcium, and iron, while volcanic ash and activated charcoal detoxifies. This rich gel feeds the skin antioxidants and protects against damage.

Origins GinZing™ Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer 

A moisturizer should never weigh on the skin. This oil-free formula boosts radiance and increases hydration to refresh dry and dull skin with the power of panax ginseng. Coffee bean extracts provides an energizing boost to radiance for a youthful glow. This light, fast-absorbing gel application is recommended for dry to oil skin types.

Skyn Iceland Anti-Blemish Gel with Willow Bark

Fight stubborn acne and inflammation with this concentrated gel that is non-irritating. It contains willow bark, a natural anti-bacterial and analgesic to combat deeply embedded acne that can appear from stress, without leaving behind dry, flaky patches that are difficult to cover smoothly. It’s important to moisturize acne and inflamed areas so they don’t become worse, and this super-soothing gel formula has oily and acne-prone skin covered. 

Paul & Joe Beaute Gel Foundation N 

You’ll always find a glorious mix of retro chic and innovation with new Paul and Joe Beaute beauty products and this foundation is a revolutionary example. If you’re tired of foundations that erase the work of your moisturizer by drying out skin, or that weighs on the surface with a slick, oily texture, this gel formula is for you. It has supreme staying power with the hydrating lightness of a water-based gel application. The finish is gel-to-powder for a luxurious texture and flawless finish. 

Kevyn Aucoin The Eye Pigment Primatif

This gorgeous gel-like eyeshadow gives a sheer, buildable, shimmering shade that is customizable. Its long-lasting formula goes on lightly and subtly and can build to bright and bold, if desired. The gel is comfortable and never cakey, dry, or irritating. Best of all, it’s smudge-proof, so there’s no worry to weigh you down, either.

IT Cosmetics Liner Love™

Eyeliner lovers crave the smooth glide of a liquid liner and the rich color of a pencil line. This waterproof gel liner combines them with a long-lasting, 12-hour formula that nourishes lashes and lids. The application is ultra-smooth and tug-free for that precise finish you crave. It won’t crease, crack, or flake, because the velvety gel contains peptides, collagen, and vitamin serums.
